National Strike Should Not Affect Scilly Transport Links

St Mary's Airport

Scilly’s fliers shouldn’t be affected by strikes at the end of the month.

Nationally, airport immigration officials and some air traffic controllers will join teachers and public sector workers in their mass walk-out on June 30th.

The Town Hall says there are no plans for local strike action but, if that should change and any services are affected, they will issue information to Radio Scilly.

But they cannot say what the likely intentions of mainland airport staff might be.

Jackie Hayman of the Steamship Company says all airports served by Skybus do not expect to be affected by the proposed strike action and normal services will continue.
